A Tricycle Tablescape

How in the world did that tricycle climb up there on the table?  I guess it has been out gathering up fall!

Blending Summer and Fall

Blending summer into fall.  As the old saying goes you can't throw the baby out with the bathwater.  Just like pretty flowers that still look beautiful you can't just throw them away.

It's a Jungle out there!

All the flowers are at full maturity!  They know their last hurrah is soon at hand.  These canna flowers have shown their full glory this summer!  I just love the heart shaped flowers that are left once the beautiful red bloom is spent.  Just so very unique!

Fall Table Favours

Mums can make some great table favours.  Place some moss in a thrifted spoon and add pretty fall flowers.  Tie with a ribbon as use as favours.

A Window Tale

This view is through our dining room window onto the front porch.  The tales this old barn door could tell if it could talk.  It would probably talk about all the storms it's weathered and all the black Angus cows it has seen as well as dairy cows.  It would most likely talk about a Grandfather, a dad and an Uncle who cared for it when it was most needed.  Now this day I get to see it every day.  It has a place of honor on our front porch and reminds me of all the labor and sweet memories of the past.
Thinking and praying for all those in harm's way still today from our recent storms and those looming.  Also thinking of those in the thick of the fire. Praying that our Nation will stay strong and weather our storms just like this old barn door!

Just Busy as a Bee Happy Labor Day

A Bee's work never ends.  They have been so active in my flowers the last several days!  I do believe they are sensing the end of their harvest year is almost over so they better gather as much nectar as they can.  This little vintage Bee toy, on our fireplace mantle, reminds me I need to busy just like those little bees.
